After starting out as a production assistant on the hit sitcom "Family Ties," he earned producing credits on such programs as "Brooklyn Bridge" and "Cop Rock," and eventually landed his first co-executive producer credit on the mid-'90s sitcom "The Single Guy." Beginning in '98, Zisk served in a producing capacity on the critically-acclaimed cable comedy "The Larry Sanders Show," his first real taste of producing success.

In 2005, he directed an episode of the comedy "Weeds," about a struggling single mother who gets into the marijuana-selling business to support her family. He eventually served as producer of the show as well, helming 20 episodes between '05 and '08, and earning his first Emmy nod for Outstanding Directing for a 2006 episode.
